This talk will give a background and description of the IBM Rational Connector for SAP Solution Manager, covering its inception as a custom application for the Blue Harmony project (IBM’s deployment of SAP packaged applications for the IBM back office, the largest single deployment of SAP packaged applications) and its evolution into a commercial product.

Following this background material, there will be a live demonstration of the features of the connector. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the design of the connector and the approach, development and testing used to implement the connector, the use the connector makes of OSLC interfaces to the CLM applications, and the connector’s partial implementation of the OSLC CM specification.
